Care & hanging Instructions
Care & hanging Instructions
Hanging : For many years, our paintings have been suspended with a strong, long-lasting, home-crafted and straightforward hanging system. The weight of the wooden panels can be fairly weighty, therefore the utilization of a metallic dowel and screw is emphatically suggested. The magnitude of the screw is contingent on the mass of the work. This can ensure the paintings remain securely hung for a considerable length of time.
Painted to last : The artist's works are executed with meticulous care and attention to detail, utilizing an undercoat to guard against any potential paint cracking over the course of time. Each piece is then thoroughly shielded with a professional-grade protective varnish, ensuring that the artwork is able to endure for generations to come.
Exposure : To maximize longevity, it is imperative to ensure that the painting is not exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time; such exposure can cause the colors to fade or otherwise degrade.
Avoid humidity : In order to maintain artwork and extend its life, proper care and cleaning methods must be employed. Firstly, it is important to ensure that the room in which the artwork is displayed is adequately ventilated, as this will reduce the risk of condensation.
Cleaning : When it comes to dusting, it is best to use a soft duster to remove any debris from the surface of the artwork. If possible, the painting should be removed from the wall in order to facilitate a more thorough cleaning. However, it is important to note that water or any other cleaning products should never be used to clean an artwork, as they may cause irreparable damage to the artwork.
A sense of peacefulness and serenity
The painting captures a moment of stillness and contemplation. The woman’s posture and her gaze offer a hint of surprise, yet it is a peaceful surprise, suggesting a moment of awe and wonder. The use of soft and muted colors, as well as the veil around her head, further accentuate the tranquil atmosphere of the painting.
The title of the painting, ‘The Water Carrier’, is highly symbolic. It speaks to the idea of the water carrier as a symbol of strength and resilience. It implies that while the woman may be confronted with challenges and surprises, she is able to carry on and remain strong. The painting also speaks to the idea of the importance of connection, both to ourselves and to the natural world. The woman’s gaze is directed towards the sky, indicating her awareness of something beyond her immediate environment, a reminder of the interconnectedness of all things in the universe.
The painting invites the viewer to pause and take a moment to reflect. It encourages us to take the time to appreciate the beauty of the natural world and to be mindful of our place in it. The painting speaks to us of the strength and the resilience of the human spirit and reminds us that we can all persevere despite the challenges and difficulties we may face in life..
